Delilah

Hello and welcome to Delilah. Lovely bulldog. He started showing lameness. Mum wanted it investigated but wanted to avoid anaesthetics if it was not needed. So he has come for physiotherapy.

We have done our assessment and found a few issues. He has upright hocks, which can suggest hip pain, but there was no other evidence of hip pain. The issue was in the left fore. But there was also little to find here other than some mild crepitus in the shoulder and some muscle loss.

So we set a home regime of muscle building to balance the shoulders, and passive range of movememt in the effected joints. We also edited the walk regime to make it easier on him whilst he is recovering.

Mum has been very good at looking after him, so keep up the good work mum, and get well soon delilah!
